PHOENIX – Glendale will host a free drive-thru coronavirus testing blitz Saturday at Glendale Community College.

The event will run from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. and appointments are required, which can be made online or by calling 602-889-9401.

People are asked to wear a mask if possible. If you don’t have a mask, one will be provided.
